Charity


"It is more blessed to give than to receive." Acts 20:35


"In prayer, God keeps calling us, opening our
hearts to Charity."    Pope Francis


The 2nd week of Advent asks us to see God's love for us. He gave His only son for our salvation. We move through this week with hope and love for our savior. 
Each week our students will design a chain link depicting their interpretation of the week's virtue. They will be connected to create one chain of all our school children's thoughts and prayers this Advent Season.



Thank you to everyone who supported our Coat Drive for The Inn.
It was a huge success!

RELIGIOUS LITERATURE READING BUDDY PROGRAM


Our new Religious Reading Buddy Program on Friday following our mass is a beautiful exchange of literature and faith. The older students read their stories to their younger buddies.Their new friendships are growing while sharing Religious themed topics. 
A special thank you to my teachers for guiding the students in this new program.


This year's Pathways classes for grades 6,7,8 are Carpentry, Chess,
E-Commerce, Shakespeare and The Stock Market Game. These diverse class offerings give our junior high students the opportunity to explore unique educational topics.


Special Congratulations!
One of our Stock Market Teams is in 3rd place in all of Nassau County in making the best investments in the market!

Please send us your tips!





Sincerely,


Mrs. Christina Teisch
Principal
